What's E-State Like?
Welcome to Utah State!
Participants check in at the dorms for a four-day adventure that begins with get-to-know you games and an opening session with the Dean of the College of Engineering. You'll learn what a professional engineer does in a day-to-day career and meet the instructors you'll be learning from the rest of the week. Later that day, we'll travel to First Dam for canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, a climbing wall, barbecue and more!
Up for a Challenge?
This is where the fun begins. During your stay at E-State you'll attend mini courses called Challenge Sessions. These sessions are designed to introduce the various aspects of engineering. After lunch, we'll travel to the Space Dynamics Lab for a tour and presentations on the latest in space technologies. Did you know USU has sent more student-built experiments into space than any other university in the world?
Engineering Makes the World a Better Place
Throughout the Challenge Sessions, you'll get a chance to learn about all the areas of engineering we teach at Utah State. We'll introduce concepts in biological engineering, civil and environmental engineering, electrical and computer engineering, computer science and mechanical and aerospace engineering. Later, we'll attend a presentation about Engineers Without Borders - a team of students who travel the world to help people solve problems related to human health, habitat and the environment.
Making New Friends
Attending E-State is like getting a taste of college life. You'll make new friends, experience new things and create lasting memories. On our final day, participants attend a catered awards luncheon featuring exciting guest speakers. Parents are invited, too. All E-State participants are offered a $100 scholarship their freshman year if they enroll in an engineering major and $200 if they stick with engineering through their sophomore year.
